Cumberland County Extension Association

The Cumberland County Extension Association partners with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension to locally direct community education programs to address the changing needs of county residents.

As the outreach college of the University of Maine, Cooperative Extension engages in teaching research-based, community-driven programs in:

  • 4-H Youth Development
  • Family Living
  • Food Safety
  • Horticulture
  • Human Nutrition
  • Sustainable Agriculture

Annually, we reach over 90.000 citizens and partner with approximately 500 Extension volunteers who extend our educational outreach to all 26 communities in Cumberland County.


We depend on annual support from the county, state, and the federal governments in order to successfully carry out our mission.
